Although his production has decreased over the past month, Eric Decker has been a valuable WR for the Denver Broncos throughout the season. If the Broncos are going to knock off the Pittsburgh Steelers and advance in the playoffs, they will have to do so without the services of Decker. According to the Denver Broncos Twitter account, Decker won't return after injuring his knee on a hit by James Harrison:
@Denver_Broncos: WR Eric Decker has a knee injury and will not return.
Decker had a very productive season for the Broncos, with 44 catches for 612 yards and eight TD's. However, over the last three weeks of the season, Decker only had two receptions, as Demaryius Thomas emerged as the primary threat for Tim Tebow in the passing attack.
